`From the reviews of the 4th edition: 'This systematic and balanced account of international law, written with great clarity and concisemess, is at both approachable and authoratitive. It is evident that each sentence carries the weight of much learning, and that the language has been crafted to give a precise and nuanced account of Professor Brownlie's views. Well indexed and well structured, the book is a delight to use.'' vaughan lowe
